Ok, I took my Srilankan Holiday when I was so much overworked at my job and the city life. I just wanted to escape - on a budget :)
Of all the trips I have made this one will always be in my heart and even when I write this review I have a smile on my face. I mean this place was awesome.
I live in UAE and have seen many luxurious hotels...but what makes this hotel different was that it was simple. The staff really was wonderful.
Yes since its an old place you will feel the Colonial Atmosphere still alive...
Despite of being so old it was clean and didnot give me that creepy feeling of being in a wrong place. I was at peace.
Do go to the lake near by and do kayaking, clycling , boat rides.. have tea (Hotel tea was awesome even if we made it in the room) I tried it again in UAE :( too bad didnot taste the same because of the water... looks like i have to go back again to this place!
We didnot get a lot of time here... Next time when I go Ill just be here for atleast a few days...
Ask for shisha its awesome -
